Description of contents: programme
The Master's Thesis is organized around a specific application or development of a quantum technology carried out by the student individually in the context of a scientific or engineering problem or challenge. A list containing a sufficiently large number of projects deemed suitable for a Master Thesis will be collected and made known to the students every year. These projects could be carried out either in any of the UC3M Departments involved in the program, at CSIC or at private companies or research centers that agree with the program directorship to serve as hosts. Students will be able to elect among these projects according to their preferencs and interest. Projects will finally be awarded in the order dictated by the students┬┐ academic performance of the previous year. In addition, specific projects proposed by a student-tutor tandem may also be allowed if specifically approved by the director of the program. All students will be provided with guidance and follow-up sessions throughout the Master Thesis. Among the tasks to carry out by the student it is included: - Compilation and analysis of information related to the Master's Thesis - Development of Master's Thesis - Preparation of the Final Document - Individual defense of the Master's Thesis
